Helping our community grow...

We are on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. It is our honor to serve our community.

The YWCA Empowerment Center works hard to serve our community by providing housing support, financial assistance, and case management services to people experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless.

We strongly believe in addressing housing needs with supportive advocacy and case management services, while collaborating with community partners to assist those experiencing housing needs in gaining economic self-sufficiency. Our philosophy is to identity barriers to permanent housing and to provide case management to ensure community members can maintain long-term economic and housing stability.


The YWCA Clinton Empowerment Center serves as the Coordinated Entry Access point for Clinton and Jackson Counties. All community members in need access services through our intake coordinator. We help those in need access the services and eliminate redundancies, delays, or gaps in services. Clients are provided individualized services, addressing any needs and barriers they encounter as they move toward self-sufficiency. We are a vital hub in our community as we work to combat homelessness in our area.
